in washington kentucky senator rand paul has spent 2013 raising his national profile. first it was the 13-hour filibuster. then a big cpac speech that helped deliver a straw poll victory. and today senator paul is wading into the immigration debate in a big way. putting his support behind a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. joining me now for the daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor. and managing editor of postpolitics.com and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and founder of the cook political report. and charlie, i'll go to you first, we'll get chris to chime in on this. i was taken aback that rand paul went out on this limb to a degree, because he was really setting himself up as the right-wing presidential candidate. this separate 0ing up a flag on the immigration front. that someone like a tom tancredo did in 2008, could exploit rand paul if they wanted to. >> it could, but i'm looking at it on the first level, is that this is a remarkable speech. here we have the person who has become pretty much the most important tea party figure in the entire country.
. and after finishing first and second in the cpac shuffle, senators rand paul and marco rubio continued to jockey for the spotlight. paul threw his support mostly behind comprehensive immigration reform as he and rubio each did their best not to get ahead of each other on what the path to legalization might look like. [ speaking in foreign language ] i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrant. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million people like rand paul said today or give blanket amnesty or a special pathway to citizenship. what i've never been for is a special pathway to citizenship. >> i'm simply saying you can get a work visa and get in the normal line. >> the idle republican party announced rand paul will headline their annual fundraiser next month. rick santorum and wisconsin governor scott walker will also be in the hawkeye state in coming weeks. we also learned marco rubio's pac spent a hundred thousand dollars on campaign consultants just last month. new jersey governor chris christie says ohio senator ro
trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is always the thing, with this spring of deficit hawk, there's always in some future the gre
the 2012 election. paul rieckhoff, executive director and founder of the iraq and afghanistan veterans of america. from 2003 to 2004 he served as army first lieutenant in iraq. let me start with michael about the cost figures. i have to call it the bs that was sold. this war was going to be paid for by cheap gas. cheap gasoline. somehow were they just going to open up the pipeline from iraq over to america? we get all that stuff? we get first dibs? we got nothing of the kind. let's start with the lives. 190,000 dead people. >> if you remember famously general eric shinseki said we would need more troops to do this and he was dismissed. remember, paul wolf wits did actually make the claim that iraqi oil revenues would be able to pay for this conflict. and not only would the selling the war point and the costs of the war, you know, in your last segment you made this great point about the media. it's even -- you can go even further than that. the media was complicit. the media took an active role in selling this war. they met with wolfowitz. there was one famous meeting where you had thes
republicans also voted today again for the paul ryan budget. democrats are very excited about that because they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about what they just voted on in congress and whether we just avoided one of the cliff slash ceilings clash crisis congress now schedules for us every few weeks and whether the way they avoided this next one is itself important. there's a lot going on in the news. we have a lot ahead. we begin tonight with late breaking and rather surprising news from the democratic leader in the senate, senator harry reid. following two days of angry response from california senator dianne feinstein, she had been very publicly disappointed and angry harry reid was not going move her assault weapons ban to the senate floor as part of the democrats gun reform package. after two days of defiant reaction from senator dianne feinstein and supporters of gun reform and vice president biden made an appearance with mayor michael bloomberg deman
in the same tonal scale. if you look at cpac, i want to talk about the straw poll a little bit. rand paul won with 25% of the vote. marco rubio, at 23. rick santorum at 8 and chris christie at 7. i've maintained, and you're a national political reporter. the enthusiasm in and around rand paul is a coalition that is more dynamic than almost anything else the gop has. what are the implications of that in the next couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand an
't. the republican party lost because it's not conservative. it didn't get the base out. >> meanwhile the rand paul of the party reacted angrily. eliminate caucuses and limit debates that they believe are aimed at hurting canned days outside the establish am. one said elimination of caucuses would mean nuclear war with the grass roots social conservatives and the ron paul movement. nbc editor mark murray is here with the morning's first read. good morning to you. stern words there obviously from the adviser to rand paul and the paul campaign. what's going on within the gop? they had this autopsy and the establish movement by the rnc trying to modernize the party and saying we will move on immigration and not be the party of old white men. in order to do that, they could have changes that could change the way we look at the primary. they want to get rid of caucuses and take that power away from the grass roots. >> two big areas of push back. 1 that you hit upon and reducing the debates and influence that caucuses have. it ends up hurting folks like rand paul and the people who might be eying a 2016
have happened. it would have ruined their lives. >> indeed, brother paul. one of the leaders for the race for 2016 powerfully making the case of the bad effects for criminalizing young people for nonviolent marijuana offenses. i think his math is a little off. three previous consecutive presidents. if the bobbys have burst in, they would have gone to the nick with the rest. it would be unimaginable if you made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those w
but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is alway
said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the war was over. let us admire and respect the position of a former president, as well as the words from a future president, it was illinois state senator barack obama who said in 2002, i don't oppose all wars. what i am opposed to is a dumb war. this is a war that cost the lives of anywhere from 110,000 to 1 million civilians. today is not a day to cheer for success. but it is a day to remember those who fought hard to avoid the war's tragic consequences. get your cell phones out. >> michael moore was booed off the stage for denouncing the invasion of iraq. so much for these bleeding heart liberals in hollywood. let us not forget the response from around the globe. u.n. secretary annan said the war was illegal. nelson mandela called it a threat to peace. pope john paul ii said the war would not solve problems of man. jesse jackson called on peaceful people everywhere to march until the
as paul ryan's budget gets said for a vote in the house and vice president joe biden says the white house is not giving up on an assault weapons ban. >>> plus, as the pentagon ponders pumping more millions into guantanamo, a senior u.s. military leader offers some candid comments about the obama administration's failure to shut it down. >> good morning. >> the national school of character. >> today is march 21st, 2013. >> and this is "the daily rundown." >>> thanks so much to the first grade class at the lielyles-cro traditional academy. good morning, how can you not be happy about that. i even got a shoutout as you heard. chuck todd is in ramallah with the president and we'll be hearing from him in just a minute. >>> president obama left jerusalem this morning to head to the west bank where he met with president mahmoud abbas. he was greeted by a crowd this morning as only the third sitting u.s. president to visit the palestinian territories. just hours before he headed into the west bank, palestinian militants fired a pair of rockets from hamas-controlled gaza. they landed in southern i
. >> for years, right has stood in opposition to immigration reform. but now even tea party senator rand paul supports a path to citizenship. and gop opposition to immigration reform is falling away. yes, we're still facing a tougher fight on things like gun control. but the president's progressive agenda is already taking shape and even the gop's getting on board. joining me now is angela and abby huntsman. thank you both for coming on this show. >> thank you, rev. >> angie, why are we seeing a shift on these issues? >> well, it's political expediency as the country continues to shift demographically, as the country continues to evolve like the president, you're going to continue to see a change in the gop's politics. they can't afford to be as conservative and right leaning as they once were. >> abby, your dad took grief for taking some positions. now i see rand paul defending his stance on immigration, of all places, fox news. take a listen. >> people like coulter and limbaugh say that you are being suckered. >> what we have now is de-facto amnesty. here's another news flash. we haven't be
eminence greze of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wackobirds. if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wackabird, count me a proud wackabird. >> everyone's favorite, rand paul, did win cpac straw poll, by the way. when it wasn't those two wackobirds, it was an angry bird, ann coulter, going after chris christie. >> cpac had to cut back on its speakers this year by about 300 pounds. >> stay classy, mrs. coulter. remember, republicans are working hard to win over women voters. after all, they gave the longest speaking segment of all at cpac to freedom-loving, soda-drinker, sarah palin, who lobbed a verbal spit ball right at bush's brain, karl rove. >> these experts who keep losing elections, keep getting rehired, raking in millions, buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> rove responded that he didn't think it would be a very good -- he would be a very good candidate because he is, quote, sort of a balding fat
-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha
? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits, none of those gentlemen served in their generations in vietnam. but they were really quick to send my generation into a religious civil war that had nothing to do with 9/11 and had no weapons of mass destruction. >> i want to bring you into this. >> their families, when they hear about today's news, but yet this other side where it is almost untalked about in the beltway. why have most forgotten? >> i think there's a tendency for people to avoid the subject. it then raises the question, if it was a police take to go into iraq and i believe that it was, in retrospect given the absence of weapons of mass destruction, then it begets the question, did those 4,500 or so die in vain? that's a hard question. people don't want to answer that. i'm surprised by the polling data today, that says that roughly 38% of americans still think it was the wise move to go in when you break that down by rs and ds, roughly 60% of republicans who still believe that it was necessary to go into iraq. for what reason? i don't know. given th
'm going to talk about rand paul with you for a moment. yesterday at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, let's listen to that. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. >> if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> now, there is one word that's an omission there. he does not mention the word citizenship. do you think he's parsing and picking his words wisely so not to put off conservatives? >> well, i think that rand paul has done a wonderful job of doing just that, alex. being nuanced in whether he's talking about drones, tax reform -- he's always been very nuanced to make sure he has -- and people starting to realize a wider vision for his own political career and that's exactly why he didn't mention specifically pathway to citizenship. what's interesting, though, prior to that a.p. story i can share with you that the chatter was he was going to talk about pathway to citizenship. so i might -- you know, the big question is, did he back away from that after he heard the chatter and heard that individuals were not welcoming it in the
a piece you have up about paul ryan. you say it's paul ryan's disappearing act. his stock could not have shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. ther
. they -- >> did you bring your gulp. >> they gave her votes in the straw poll to rand paul and right behind him to marco rubio. but sarah palin taking on karl rove in a thinly-veiled jibe at rove and rove come back on fox news. >> if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in that party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck, buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> if she can plan primaries other people can plan primaries. i don't think i'm a particularly good candidate, a balding foot phat guy and if i did run for office and win, i would serve out my term, i wouldn't leave office mid-term. >> ouch. >> is palin still a factor? she brought the crowd to their feet on saturday afternoon. >> i don't think she's a factor at all. i think she's just an amusing reality show to watch. >> she accused the president, she said that the white house is a reality show. this is a woman via mark burnett did her own reality show and she accused barack obama of having a reality show. >> she's got a
that go into some of the parties that the republican party has. you could have rand paul and senator cruz, other senator, luminaries talk about who's not with the party. and sending field reps there to work for weeks but they have to have policies that will be responsive, as well as the ground game, net game and money game. >> along with policies there's a communication thereof. and jackie, the first question to the rnc chair this morning was is this a communications problem? or a problem with policies of the republican party? and here's what he said. >> i think our policies are sound. but i think that, many ways, the way that we communicate can be a real problem. it's not about altering our principles. i think it's about the way we communicate and the way we welcome people into our party. >> welcoming and communicating. is that an accurate assessment here do you think? >> well, i think that one thing is important to say, and you illustrated it a little bit in those clips. the rnc has this plan out there now, you do have some people, a lot of people in the republican party that don't nece
flat. nobody got it. >> two wig winners, rand paul and won the straw poll going away and receiving with his speech and marco rubio did really well. i think you see chris christie sitting there with 7% -- >> who? >> chris christie. >> he was not only excluded, he was insulted there by some extreme voice. >> insult chris christie, you only make him stronger. >> i know. ron, chris christie couldn't have had it any better. first of all, he didn't have to go to cpac and, secondly, he was on everybody's mind at cpac and, third, he fred ahead from the vice presidential nominee in the polling. all in all a big success. i would say the three big winners, rand paul and marco rubio and the guy who wasn't there, chris christie. >> i agree. the democratic party is always the worst three days of the year for the republican party when you have all of these whacko birds on the fringe fighting with each other. those are the three winners, i agree. chris christie is setting -- a nice position to be the one guy come out incredibly and a good place to be. i think jeb bush, mark is right. he fell flat
. >> bill: we have been told by jay carney that the questions raised by rand paul and others about drones and ron widen, are legitimate questions and the white house is pretty soon going to release its guidelines or policy on drones. is this move part of that do you believe? >> yeah, i think it is. john brennan is now the cia director, has over the past year or two been leading an internal process inside the administration to try to set rules and guidelines and really a process for the drone program going forward, and it's known internally as -- it's called the play book, the idea that they are devising a set, basically of rules, and it will bring more logic to the drone program. >> bill: yeah. >> and this is coming out of that process. >> bill: well, it's interesting that -- that john brennan, the architect of our drone program, once he gets to the cia, the first thing he says is i want to get rid of this hot potato right? >> yeah. >> bill: on domestic drones who is in charge of overseeing the exploding use of domestic drones by government agencies and universities a
. that was fast. we're outta here. ♪ [ engine revs ] >>> paul ryan's budget is expected to hold sway after a series of votes, but it won't be for lack of trying by the democratic minority. to talk about the contrasting policies, jim clyburn. mr. leader, thank you for being with us. >> thank you so much for having me. >> first of all, the budget fights ahead, it's clear that the house votes are all going to go the republicans' way, but right now the senate is even talking about voting in favor of paul ryan's budget, even though they don't want it to pass. so what -- what are the competing tactics right now on the ryan budget? >> well, i don't know exactly what the senate's plans might be, but i do know this. the ryan budget will inflict so much pain on middle income americans until it will absolutely wreak havoc in their families. so what i am hopeful, is that we can get the votes to pass the democratic alternative to the ryan budget. we don't believe that we ought to be raising taxes on middle income americans, which is exactly what the ryan budget will do. if you are going to sort the vou
the argument for invading in the first place, that was also advanced this week by paul wolfowits' old boss, donald rumsfeld. he tweeted on the morning of the anniversary, quote, ten years ago began the long, difficult work of liberating iraqis, all who played a role in history, deserve our respect and appreciation. yes, remember that war of iraqi liberation that we were asked to sign up for as a country? you don't remember that? it's because that's not what they sold us. that's not what they told us that war was for. they're retroactively defining it that way. this is richard pearl, one of the neo cons pushing the discredited evidence of weapons of mass destruction and nuclear and biological weapons plans. he reemerged to share this bit of self-reflection. >> ten years later, nearly 5,000 american troops dead, thousands more with wounds, hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or wounded. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people involved
paul's filibuster to argue the conservatives are somehow winning now. and he took a swipe at senator john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence grize of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wacko birds. >> we wondered whether senator rand paul could corral straw poll supporter. he clearly did. the libertarian senator scored with conservatives looking toward the 2016 race. winning the straw poll with 25% of the vote. very close second there. marco rubio at 23%. no other candidate, though, in double digits. for cycle after cycle, the republican party has been rewarding the next guy in line with their presidential nomination. but for the first time in a generation, the party has no front-runner. could mean a crowded field. this weekend the potential candidates were already jockeying for position. wisconsin governor scott walker, among the weekend's more popular speakers, admitted he has white house ambitions to politico saying, quote, would i ever be interested? possibly. i guess the only thing i'd say is i'm not ruling it out. for me it's really a measure of what i've
are fine. the idea is america to folks like rand paul who said we need a brand new political party. a new gop. the thing is this debate will be happening over the next couple years and we won't find out where the republican party is for a while. democrats were just in this position after losing the 2004 election. they had very big debates, particularly over the iraq war in 2005, 2006. then everything was settled. we'll see where republicans are come 2015 and 2016. >> mark murray, good to see you. let's bring in radio talk show host michael smerconish who is also with msnbc and jonathan from american cross roads. thank you for being with me. jonathan, let me start with you. this is what rnc chair reince priebus said. >> focus groups describe our party as narrow minded, out of touch and, quote, stuffy old men. the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately continues to grow. that's frustrating. because we care about every voter. >> what does this plan do? what does plan do to change those perceptions at least? >> i think it is a very, very good start. a very good framework o
rand paul of kentucky, fresh off of his big win at cpac straw poll he is going to be giving a big speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce where he is going to unveil his plan on immigration that will include a path to citizenship. >> bill: wow. talk about teeing himself up for 2016. >> oh yeah. he has made it very hard for immigrants -- >> bill: probably have to have an eye exam. [ laughter ] >> 20/20. >> yeah. >> i'll be curious to see how many republicans stand with rand on this issue? >> bill: kerry back to marriage equality, next tuesday and wednesday the supreme court will be hearing oral arguments on the two cases they have in front of them, doma and california's prop 8. we know how some of them are going to rule but will this rob portman and hillary clinton, and 80-some republicans signing an amicus brief do you think this all will have any impact on the supreme court? >> absolutely. they read the news like anybody else. at this point i think the politicians themselves areless important. but what is very important is public opinion. i'm not sayin
these days. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a

from l.a. paul bond who covers television for the hollywood reporter. here in the studio stacy who does the same thing for "the new york post." linda, before i get to you i want' to put up the actor's picture so everybody knows what the actual actor playing satan looks like. let's pop that up right now. he doesn't look anything like and now pop the picture of the devil in the bible series. pop that in. so they made him up and he definitely looks like barack obama. and you say? >> i think he absolutely looks like barack obama. and my first impression was well, at least they have one black person in this mini series, he plays the devil. now i find out he is not even a black person. they put him in black face. >> bill: yeah, because it is a white actor. >> yeah, he is in black face. >> bill: i don't want to put words in your mouth. you believe that burnett and his wife roma downie who are the producers of the bible did this intentionally. they wanted to have satan look like barack obama? >> i can't speak for them. can i only say that all the good guys are very white. and very white face. >
